I’m a Lucky Duck!

I have won ANOTHER giveaway! From a company that I find inspirational: Ecojot is a Canadian company makes 100% post-consumer recycled paper products. So, they are BEAUTIFUL as well as very Earth Friendly! I was first drawn to their stuff by seeing Carolyn Gavin’s art somewhere on the internet.

June mid-month meetup

Plans include visiting with my nephew Max, and seeing his installed quilt in person – oh yeah, a good visit with his Mom & Dad, as well… Continue Reading
